Angry Birds Epic and other games

I don't know if I've mentioned this around here before, but my day job consists mainly of drawing/painting/designing stuff for video games. The release of the latest (and, to date, biggest) game I've worked on, Angry Birds Epic, seemed like a good opportunity to point you to some of the other games I have contributed to over the last couple of years. For most of these, I have done a mix of user interface design, characters, backgrounds, and icons/items. In all but one case (Apnoe), the art direction wasn't done by me and I therefore had very little influence on the style and overall look of the games. But since the guy who art-directed most of these games is really good, that's not so bad.

These are all iTunes links. Most of these are also available for Android and other systems, but I'm too lazy right now to look up the links.

I'm totally addicted to Angry Birds Epic right now, so I'd absolutely recommend that you at least check that one out - even if you're not a fan of the previous Angry Birds games. I think the Happy Hills games, Bloodstroke, Word Wonders, and Towers & Dungeons are also well worth looking at if you like casual games.
